The Marsala Layering Lip Collection ($35 CAD) Is a set of five nude lip pencils that allow you to mix and layer tones of Marsala. The formula contains hyaluronic filling spheres for plumping, and resveratrol, an antioxidant derived from red wine grapes, for hydrating colour that shines. The formula is scent free and has a light buttery cream texture that is a delight to wear.
The exterior packaging features a transparent marsala ombre effect. It is really quite lovely. Things get even prettier when you open up the exterior packaging to reveal the product packaging itself. All the products in the collection are housed in palettes that have either a gold finish or rose gold (one might call it marsala tinged gold) finish. I’m not sure whether the variation in tone of the gold packaging was intentional or not. The Marsala Layering Lip Collection is the more traditional gold finish.
I was truly surprised by just how much I loved this Marsala Layering Lip Collection. I don’t think I would actually bother with layering these because each of the 5 shades is stunning on it’s own. Although I suppose that means the resulting combinations will be equally as beautiful, so it might be worth investing some time in playing with layering. The small, twist up crayon packaging makes these purse perfect.
The shades range from paler nudes to midtone shades. Each a variation of tones of the Marsala Colour of the Year shade. Some pulling more brown and others more pink. It is just a fantastic range of nude shades. All more unique than lining them up side by side may indicate. The finishes vary from a more glossy, slightly transparent cream like Marsala, to more a more traditional cream finish like Canyon Clay, and even an almost matte finish like on Rose Dawn.
I have such love for theSEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE 2015 Colour of the Year Marsala 18-1438 Capsule Collection and this Marsala Layering Lip Collection is another glowing example of why. I am really loving this set.
